How To Fish In My Time At Portia

Fishing is an essential part of any role playing simulation game. Here’s how you can fish in My Time at Portia.


Just like most games in a similar mold, My Time at Portia has fishing integrated into its gameplay. You can fish to get some rare fish which you can cook, sell, or use to craft certain items. What sets fishing apart in My Time at Portia is that it’s considerably easier compared to similar games. Take Stardew Valley for example. Stardew’s fishing mechanics are a little difficult and can be daunting for someone who plays the game looking for a relaxing experience. In My Time at Portia, fishing is super simple but not too simple enough that you’ll be bored by it. It has interesting fishing mechanics that isn’t just passive gameplay while waiting for your character to get the fish.

Where can you fish?

Unlike similar games, you can’t just fish in any old body of water. You need to go to designated fishing spots to go fishing. Of course, the fish varies in every fishing spot you go to. Here’s a map that shows you where you can fish around Portia.

How do you fish?

So first things first. You’ll need to have a fishing rod with you and some caterpillars to use as bait. You can craft a Beginner’s Fishing Rod using your Worktable and you can get Caterpillars from gathering plants like Herbs and Snake Berries in the wild.

Once you have everything you need, you’re now ready to fish. Go to a fishing spot and keep getting closer to the water until you’re prompted to fish. Be careful though, as you’ll immediately respawn if you touch the water. 

When you’re finally fishing, you’ll be prompted to pull in your rod once you’ve hooked a fish. There’ll be a red exclamation point coming out of your fishing spot to indicated that there’s a fish.

Now, you’ll actually have to pull the fish towards you. Here’s where the fishing mechanics come into play. You’ll see that there’s a white circle around the fish you’ve hooked and a number in front of you. The goal is to keep the fish inside the circle while pulling it closer towards you. The number is an indicator of how far the fish is from you and as you pull, you’ll see it get lower until it reaches you. 

While pulling the fish, you’ll also notice that the white circle gets filled in red. This is important as you need to keep the circle white and clear or else the line will break. Make sure that you keep the circle on the fish and the color stays white. Follow these instructions and you’ll be catching fishes in no time.
